A range of employment opportunities awaits NYU Law grads. Private practice is the most common starting point, though many take public service and government positions. Some land jobs at consulting firms or other businesses. The data below reflects what NYU Law reports to the ABA for each class year nine months following graduation. We present it in a format similar to one used by some of our peer schools to allow for easy comparison. See more »
New York University School of Law participates in exchange programs with 16 law faculties around the world. Encouraging our students to study abroad, and receiving exchange students from other countries, enhances the Law School’s goal of providing opportunities for the study of global legal issues. Whether you are from another country looking to come to New York, or an NYU student wishing to spend a semester abroad, the perspectives gained away from your home institution will undoubtedly impact your learning experience. With the return of our students from abroad, and the arrival of new exchange students, we hope to foster an environment where international understandings complement national legal educations.
NYU School of Law encourages our J.D. students to consider the possibility of studying abroad as a means to become familiar with a foreign legal perspective in a way unavailable to them in New York. Depending on each student’s individual course of study, the feasibility of spending a semester away from the Law School varies.
J.D. students at NYU School of Law currently in their first or second year are eligible to apply for an exchange semester during their second or third year. Students who transferred to NYU School of Law from another law school are eligible for an exchange semester during their third year. Currently there are 16 approved partner law faculties at which students may study abroad.
If you are interested in one of our approved exchange programs, please take the time to consider all the information available about studying abroad by following the links in the box to the right.

The school-by-school breakdown of the New York bar exam results is out. Let’s take a look!
* The Second Circuit has remanded the New York Stop and Frisk decision, demanding that a new judge hear the case. Among the reasons: that Judge Shira Scheindlin gave “media interviews and public statements purporting to respond publicly to criticism of the District Court.” So basically, act like a contemptuous prick in the press and when the judge calmly reaffirms her impartiality, get her thrown off the case. Thankfully this will all stop being an issue on about January 1, 2014. [U.S. Courts]
* Attorney networking and referral site wireLawyer gave itself a Halloween makeover. Personally I wouldn’t want a Fett as an attorney — they have a tendency to lose their heads or fall into pits of despair. Screenshot if you check out the site after they’ve moved on to what we can only assume is their All Saints Day makeover. [wireLawyer]
* Joe Biden’s niece appeared in court after she clashed with police last month, “swinging at a female officer then slapping another” before being dragged away in handcuffs all while touting how she “studied law.” This actually sounds more like something Joe Biden’s Onion persona would do. [NY Post]
* Penn Law is sporting pumpkins carved with the likeness of all nine Supreme Court justices. [Under the Button]
* Vivia Chen’s epic fail as a mother on Halloween. We still love you. [The Careerist]
* The House of Representatives has now introduced a use restriction on videos of House hearings to prevent the footage from being used for political purposes. That doesn’t sound all that legal. The Republicans just desperately don’t want people to know what they actually do at “work.” [Patently-O]
* Meanwhile, the Senate GOP is going filibuster on Patricia Millett’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit despite lacking any objection to her. [Huffington Post]
* NYU Law carried on its annual tradition of acting out the Erie case. Screw that! They should act out Palsgraf…
